Ogawa Choraku (1874-1939)
Potter of Kiyomizu ware. Studied under Keinyu and Konyu of the Raku family.
From South Kuwa in Tanba Province (modern-day Kameoka in Kyoto Prefecture).
In 1885, he moved to Kyoto and received pottery instruction from Konyu Raku. In 1903, he started a branch family at Konyu's behest and began making pottery in earnest at a kiln in Gojo-zaka. At this time he was granted the name "Choraku" by Master Mokurai, the head priest of Kennin Temple, as well as the name "Choyuken" by Ennosai of the 13th generation of the Urasenke.
In 1910, he moved his kiln to Tenno Town in Okazaki, where he continued to fire Raku ware making use of the best qualities of Keinyu and Konyu while introducing his own touches.

The bowl arrived very promptly here in Australia safe and sound, expertly wrapped in bubble wrap. The bowl is a very humble bowl with a good and comfortable feel in the hands, interesting undulating rim which fits well to the mouth. The deep black glaze has many pin holes and in day light, showing faint oil-spot on the exterior, faint tea dust on the interior. The clay body is fairly coarse, the foot ring rather spontaneously done (there is some chattering on part of the unglazed area. The Ogawa Choraku I mark is clearly visible.
